There, he joined the ‘Verismo’, a movement, which focused on the representation of daily reality, in contrast from the traditional doctrines. In 1877, he traveled to France and met the Impressionists Edgar Degas, and Édouard Manet. Their works had an impact on Mancini's late output.

(Ritratto del nipote Alfredo).Realizzata nel 1921, quest’opera è esposta nello stesso anno, prima alla Galleria Pesaro di Milano, poi a Firenze, presso la Fiorentina Primaverile.Viene eseguita nella casa - studio di viale Parioli 7 a Roma, dove il pittore era andato a vivere con la famiglia: il fratello Giovanni, con la moglie Adele ed i loro figli: Alfredo Enrica e Domenica. I tre nipoti diventano da quel momento i modelli più utilizzati. Qui a posare è Alfredo, che nel 1918 era rientrato dal fronte.Fatta eccezione per il rosso vivo di un panneggio posto nella zona superiore, il dipinto è una modulazione omogenea di tinte chiare tra il bianco argenteo il giallo e il marrone rosato. Alfredo è nudo, ma porta, curiosamente, un ampio turbante sulla testa. Questo elemento, posto al centro del quadro risulta il fulcro dell’intera composizione. Il corpo del giovane è visto di tre quarti da dietro. Il volto è appena girato verso lo spettatore. L’abbozzo del nudo si ripete, come specchiato, sulla sinistra in una forma più evanescente e volutamente incerta.Le pennellate cariche di colore che costruiscono i volumi per giustapposizione e alcuni particolari delineati con pochi tratti come la mano in primo piano, sottolineano quella modernità che è tipica dell’ultimo Mancini e di cui quest’opera rappresenta un esempio particolarmente originale.L’opera è documentata presso gli eredi del pittore fino alla fine degli anni Quaranta del Novecento.Cinzia VirnoOpera registrata presso l’Archivio Antonio Mancini con il codice 95(8)0600AVL’opera è inserita nel Catalogo Ragionato dei dipinti di Antonio Mancini di imminente pubblicazione, a cura di Cinzia Virno, De Luca Editori d’Arte, Roma.

Antonio Mancini - Portrait of Miss Elizabeth Williamson

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Antonio Mancini (Italian, 1852-1930) Portrait of Miss Elizabeth Williamson, aged 12 signed upper right "A Mancini 1908" oil on canvas h:124 w:66 cm Provenance: A gift from the sitter, Miss Elizabeth Williamson, to Sir Richard Stone, and by descent Other Notes: Elizabeth Williamson was the grand-daughter of Mrs Charles Hunter, a society hostess who owned the Villa Barbaro in Venice, and was friends with Henry James and Edith Wharton. Mrs Hunter was a collector and philanthropist of the arts, and a close friend of Sargent who painted her. It was Sargent who introduced Mancini to Mrs Hunter, and she commissioned the portrait of her grandaughter Elizabeth. Elizabeth's mother, Phyllis, was one of the three beautiful Misses Hunter painted by Sargent in 1902 and now in the Tate Gallery. 'Once you have stood in front of a Mancini painting you never forget it' - this daring claim was made by Ulrich W. Hiesinger, author of 'Antonio Mancini', in the sought-after catalogue for the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Antonio Mancini exhibition in 2009. The present cherubic portrait of twelve year old Elizabeth Williamson is evidence of this. Antonio Mancini was a tortured and impoverished artist who was born in Rome but brought up in Naples. In his day his neighbours called him "Il pittore pazzo" - the crazy painter, because of his passion for art and his disregard for social convention. In 1893 one of his contemporaries wrote: 'Mancini is … nuts, but he's a nice nut … the fact is he has a fly buzzing around in his skull'. Despite this he was considered John Singer Sargent's favourite artist and it was on Sargent's recommendation that Mancini ventured to England where his social inadequacies were spotlighted. Mrs Hunter, sister of the noted composer Dame Ethel Amyth and wife of coal magnate Charles Hunter acted as his sponsor and protector. Mrs Hunter was a prolific supporter of artists, writers and musicians and joked that her lifetime's goal was to spend her husband's vast fortune. American writer Edith Wharton, a close friend of Mary Hunter's, describes the weekends that Mary would gather society around her as life 'on a large scale'. Mancini, with his poor command of English and unconquerable shyness, would become impenetrably silent in this grand environment and would retreat to his room to paint self portraits, many of which he later destroyed. Mary Hunter introduced Mancini to Hugh Lane who became a great patron of Mancini's and several works are now in the Hugh Lane Gallery, Ireland. The portraits there share the marks of Mancini's graticola - or perspective grid - as shown in the present portrait of Elizabeth Williamson. The grid-like marks that show themselves across the surface of the lower parts of the painting are tributes to Mancini's obsession with perspective and the elements of tone. Mancini would construct a grid in front of the sitter and then another over his work and painted between the blocks. Perhaps due to his unconfident nature, Mancini never relinquished his grids and his thick impasto strokes are a modern, almost proto-Cubist, innovation. Mancini takes great care over Elizabeth's rosy-cheeked face which is highlighted by white. The paint on her clothes is laid on with much more aggressive lumps of paint, the result of which suggests the conversion of light into a solid form. The painting of Elizabeth's hands and legs shows how far Mancini has moved away from his early meticulous figurative paintings in favour of work that shows his passion and anguish in every stroke. Elizabeth was said to be a good sitter and in fact Mancini has painted her three times and her brother Charles. Oral tradition says Mancini became so aggravated by the children's governess fussing over them that he threw a tube of paint at the poor lady. Elizabeth responded in her best beginner's Italian: ' Piano … Piano, Signore !' before resuming her pose with an air of gentle scorn. The artist was so touched by her maturity that he fell on his knees to beg her forgiveness.

Condition Report: Mancini's graticola (string) technique is visible on the painting. The painting is in its original state and has not been cleaned.

Antonio Mancini (Italian, 1852-1930) - The artist's mother, Maria Mancini signed along the bottom edge

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Antonio Mancini (Italian, 1852-1930) The artist's mother, Maria Mancini signed along the bottom edge "Mancini" charcoal heightened with white on buff paper h:48 w: 33 cm Provenance: Private collection and by descent within an Italian family Other Notes: Antonio Mancini was born in Rome and showed precocious ability as an artist. At the age of twelve, he was admitted to the Institute of Fine Arts in Naples, where he studied under Domenico Morelli (1823–1901), a painter of historical scenes who favoured dramatic chiaroscuro and vigorous brushwork, and Filippo Palizzi (Italian,1818-1899) who founded the Naples Società Promotrice di Belle Arti in 1861. Mancini worked at the forefront of the Verismo movement, an indigenous Italian response to 19th-century Realist aesthetics. His usual subjects included children of the poor, juvenile circus performers, and musicians he observed in the streets of Naples. His portrait of a young acrobat in Il Saltimbanco (1877–78) exquisitely captures the fragility of the boy whose impoverished childhood is spent entertaining pedestrian crowds. While in Paris in the 1870s, Mancini met the Impressionist painters Edgar Degas and Édouard Manet. Mancini devised his own method of portraiture known as his string technique, in which he used this method to square up before starting a portrait. He became friends with John Singer Sargent, who famously pronounced him to be the greatest living painter.

Description: Antonio Mancini (Italian, 1852-1930) Venditrice d'aranci (The orange seller) signed 'A. Mancini' (lower right) oil on canvas 29 1/2 x 29 3/4in (75 x 75.5cm) Footnotes Provenance Private collection, Chicago (acquired after the 1934 exposition); By descent to the present owner, Miami, Florida (circa 1980s). Exhibited Chicago, Esposizione pittura italiana dell'800, May-November 1934, no. 288. Born in Rome in 1852, the talented young Mancini enrolled in the Naples Academy of Art under Domenico Morelli at the age of twelve. It was there that Mancini developed his trademark technique of chiaroscuro and strong brushwork, so favored by Morelli. The streets of Naples offered him his favorite subjects: children of the poor, street musicians and circus performers, in true verismo fashion. He spent the 1870s living in Paris and meeting Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet and John Singer Sargent, with whom he developed a close friendship. Sargent's admiration of Mancini was well-known, proclaiming him one of the greatest living painters. The present work displays a striking impasto and a unique grid technique that Mancini developed in later years. The English painter W.R. Sickert, a friend of Mancini, explained the artist's working method: 'His paintings were done through a wire grille, whose squares correspond with a grille before the sitter. The marks of the grille remain. The sitter being, as it were, pinned down, retained of his mobility alone the facial expression. But, trembling and snorting within that restriction, there is an extraordinary vivacity, there is power and a dashing impasto' (https://museum.wales/search/?q=mancini)

Description: Albano Laziale 1852 - Rome 1930 il violinsta - recto profilo di violinsta - verso signed l.r. recto & verso oil on canvas 98 by 59cm., 38I by 23in. Mancini entered the Istituto di Belle Arti, Naples at the precocious age of twelve. By the time of his graduation in 1873, he was at the forefront of verismo in Neapolitan art together with Francesco Paolo Michetti and Vincenzo Gemito. Sharing a studio with Gemito, he painted the street boys, musicians and dancers of Naples, creating an anti-academic, popular art. His patron, Albert, Count Cahen of Antwerp (1846-1903), encouraged him to visit Paris in 1875, where he met Manet and Degas. After a second visit in 1877, he lightened his previously sombre palette and his style moved away from sensual modelling to become more decorative. During the 1880s and 1890s Mancini's work became increasingly flamboyant in the use of both colour and impasto. His output was dominated by society portraits, although he often returned to the genre subjects of his youth. The grandiose Marchese Capraniaca del Grillo (1889; London, National Gallery) is a striking example of his mature work. In his late paintings Mancini was preoccupied with surface texture, using thick impasto and adding materials such as coloured glass and foil to enhance the luminous colours of his canvases. Though considered by John Singer Sargent to be the best contemporary Italian painter, Mancini only became a member of the Accademia Nazionale di St. Luca in 1929.
